Eligibility | Funding | Timeline and Cycle Details | Grant Administration Documents
The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) administers a program to provide opportunities for the California Tire Recycling Management Fund to administer the Tire Recycling Act (Senate Bill 937, [Vuich, Statutes of 1990, Chapter 35]) and related legislation.
